ok rowan, Biscuit and Cindy have this weird friendship....they like to be in the same room sleeping together (the pair of them just sleep all day long, it's pathetic) but they'll be at opposite ends, they don't cuddle together. Biscuit likes to take Cindy's blanket, put it on top of hers, and sleep on them both, living cindy without anything. Cindy has a crate here now, so we seem to have gotten rid of that problem.
When we had Cindy when we were younger it was a game for us to get her to 'sketch the cat' We'd let he rout in the backyard, meow for her and tell her to sketch the cat. There was never any cat there. She would chase cats on walks, but she never ever ever caught one, she just liked the chase. she lived in harmony with our pet rabbits and our pet galah (yep at one stage we owned a bird, and it was a horrible thing!) with the neighbours cat sitting on the fence. So really she has never hurt another animal, ever.
When I first got Milko, and Biscuit took on the mothering role, Cindy, who is half blind, seen a cat in HER loungeroom, got up and barked her head off at him. Milko froze, like a puffed up ball and was hissing like crazy at her. I picked Milko up and yelled at cindy, and she went and buried her head in the curtain and has never barked at him again. Milko hides from Cindy, but cindy is sooooo over him these days so Milko is getting braver. He has had some bad experiences with her. Biscuit lets Milko stick his head in her bowl and eat with her...Cindy only allows humans to be near her bowl, she oesn't share with other animals. So when Milko wanted what Cindy was having and she showed him her teeth (she could've ripped his head off but she's not that kind of dog) Milko was very confused. I'm positive that as times goes on they'll become friends. We have pics of cindy somewhere, cuddled up asleep, with one of our rabbits!!
